This Festival is born, as a stream of Aguaespejo Granada, following the teachings on poetic mechanisms of participatory experience and expanded cinema of the filmmaker and Granada-born inventor Val del Omar.

The idea is to promote poetic and experimental cinema and extend its presence to the geography of not just our city but the world while establishing a dedicated space for these distinctive films.

The 6th edition of the Cinespejo Festival, to be held in Las Gabias in April 2024, aims to be a benchmark for the public who loves cinema and poetry.

It will consist on the one hand of a contest of poetic short films and on the other hand of an express short contest.

Cinespejo de Plata for Second Best Short Film: 800 EUR

Cinespejo de Plata for Third Best Short Film: 500 EUR
